well the co9mparison between 5dmk3 and d800 is a non-sense. the 5d is better in several areas than d800, the 60D is worst than k5/d7000 in everything (except lens selection, but this is not a feature of the camera)

... I don't think a 5d3/d800 discussion refresh is necessary, but to stay on topic while outclassed by the d7000 the 60d runs magic lantern while Nikon doesn't have any 3rd party firmware add-ons - this was the decisive reason back when I decided to go the Canon path.

magic lanter runs in my 50D also, but i never installed; it's not a canon product, it's something that you use at your own risk

with 300€ i can buy cigarettes for 40 days ;)

Why do you think I've given up smoking? It's a great incentive -just put the money you would have spent into your gear fund!  :)

yes you are right, but i am too weak ;)

we call a joke because we were very disappointed when it come out, really a step back from 50D

buying 2day it's really foolish for someone that is staring with photography, infact
all advantage except ergonomics over the rebel line are gone, and at the same price you can buy a nikon D7000 (slightly more expensive) or a pentax K5 (less expensive)

the 5dmk3 costs a lot as the nikon D800...do you think $3000 (€2900) are a gift compared to $3500 (€3200).

both cameras are really expensive and both manufactors listened to their customers

500$ could buy be more RAM to run lightroom 4,A copy of Lightroom 4 to go with my 5D3, and Windows 7 Pro to run my new workflow. 500$ is a big deal because new camera can change workflows and workflows cost more $$$.

i am not saying there isnt a gap in price, i am saying they are both expensive…here in italy the gap is narrower, but i think those hardware are for pro photographers and maybe for some amateurs not mass market for sure

Quote from: c-law
9D - Entry level FF @ $1600 (Build like a rebel or xxD, not highly sealed, low FPS, xxD or 7D AF)

if the D600 is in the same league that would be fine.
but i think canon could not afford that the D600 is much better feature wise.

im only guessing here but a 1600-1800$ fullframe will create a lot of interest, in my opinion.
I believe Canon would risk that their name would carry a slightly inferior spec's camera as long as it isn't too far out. They pitted the 19pt AF of the 7D against the 51pt Af of the D300/s, although they did have the FPS advantage.

i think for moving subjects the af of 7d performs better, not talking about the advantage in shutter  lag the 7d has, and the 50% more pixels on sensor.

it's depens waht use you are going to do with camera...for a sp camera 5d mk3 is better tha d800; btw both cameras arent aimed at mass market

I am surprised no one here has pointed out that the 60D lacks the AF micro-adjustment feature.  I have a 60D and really like it but was unaware it lacked that feature when I bought it.  At the time I chose it over the 7D because ergonomically it just felt better in my hand.  I had the 60D + 18-200 when I went to Africa last year and was very happy with that combo (perhaps I lucked out and got a very good copy of that lens).  But as I started to accumulate lenses, not all of them played nice with the 60D and I had no way to adjust for that.  I got so frustrated that I bought a used 7D, calibrated my lenses and now my 60D stays at home unless my husband takes it out.  So just be aware of this.  I will say that the 60D is a great camera to learn on because it is less complicated than the 7D, but for me the 7D wins.

the 60D is a joke...plain and simple. policarbonate body, limited lcd on the top, lack of MFA, and a sensor that perform  worsta than a 600d.

if i would buy a new camera in that price range i would buy a pentax k5 if interested on photos and a 650d if interested on videos.

btw i guess the 60D performed quite good in a marketing ways, so kudos to canon's marketing guys

    Look at Sony, King of the LCD TV market for about a decade, made the best quality TV's but other brands caught up in terms of features and prices came down now to the point where Sony lost so much market share they are leaving the TV business. 

Canon WAKE UP

in which planet? Sony is losing money from TV business since 8 straight years, even when they got the largest chunk of the market (2 years of so ago)

EOS Bodies / Re: Used 60D or new 650D/T4i?
« on: June 13, 2012, 11:30:50 AM »
The autofocus is quick and accurate enough to be used in sports.

I agree with you that the 60d is a nice camera - except for sports: the af points are simply spread too far apart, and relying only on a single af point to do the tracking often doesn't do it. And the worst part is the crippled firmware, since you cannot customize *anything* of the af servo system - just use it or don't use it, from my experience with it I don't I'm sorry to say.


agree...using the servo and central point the AF is erratic, but the firmware it's not crippled … this kinda autofocus Always worked this way, from 40D to nowadays

the autofocus should be the same of 650D...for taking pactures, should be inferior for video

I don't know if it's as much an issue as a reason to make you buy a 1D body :)
The ISSUE is I have no budget for it.

that's the basic issue for a lot of people ;)

I lust after a lot of things well beyond my budget  :(

having an unlimited budget would be really boring, and probably would not exists all those models of camera/lenses ;)

Are you really consider 7D?  Why don't you wait for 70D or 7D2?

if i find a good deal yes...i can sell my 450D and 50D and get a used 7D basically for free; if 70D or 7DMKII will turn out as very good cameras, i can sell the 7D and change again...butit's just an idea.

10x for the advice….i think i will pass on 1d, too expensive and the 7d suit better my needs
